    I suggest you do so, and point out where I have made this claim.

    Well... yeah, but it was irrelevant to the discussion. I'm not trying to make the point that Objectivism is flawed economically, just morally.

    We also benefit from them acting in others' best interest. That's why things like volunteer fire departments exist.

    A form of ethical conduct can be unethical but still yield ethical results at times. Just as a form of conduct can be ethical but lead to unethical results. My point is there is a difference between motivation and result. If you see a child on the street and decide, for whatever reason, that you want to kill that child; yet when you swerve to hit them you miss and just happen to crash into a car being driven by a serial killer which causes him to be caught and arrested, this does not mean that it is ethically okay to try to run over children, even though in this instance it resulted in an ethically good result (i.e. stopping the serial killer from killing again).

    No it's not, The Hobbit is a much better book, and it's sold a heap more copies than Atlas Shrugged.

    Atlas shrugged is one of the hundreds of books I never found time to read. From what I've heard Ann Rand was awesome. So I will surely see the movie. It would come to cable ar some point.

    Not in the views of the ancient greeks, no.

    Perhaps you'll note that Achilles did not die in the Illiad. His fatal flaw showed up in later mythology, in the form of his heel. But that was not once mentioned in the heroic epics of Homer.

    Depends on the mayor's mood and which 'puter he's using and if he's willing to divulge personal information over the Internet to strangers.

    The Illiad Starts out with Achilles throwing a temper tantrum over a slave. Don't even try and pass it off as not portraying him with a tragic flaw.
